Our aim is to support individuals with Autistic Spectrum Disorder to lead empowered and rewarding lives, by offering them independence, support and a low arousal environment.
Staff are present 24 hours a day to offer individuals 1:1 support. Individuals are supported to enhance their skills and abilities by accessing the local community, facilities and local colleges in order to gain an opportunity for employment in the future. All staff are fully trained to an exceptionally high standard in autism as well as health & safety, epilepsy, challenging behaviour and safeguarding as well as other mandatory training.
Visual support, PECS, Makaton, BSL, and verbal communication are a few of the ways we help support individuals with us.
